Leading exercise program for seniors SilverSneakers will come equipped with Apple Fitness+ offerings at the start of 2023, free of charge
An early holiday present for fitness lovers this year comes courtesy of Tivity Health’s SilverSneakers program. The members will have the opportunity to gain a free Apple Fitness+ subscription in 2023. This offer includes more than 3000 workouts and meditations for users to enjoy anywhere, anytime.
SilverSneakers is a leading community fitness platform designed just for seniors. Fitness+ through Tivity’s program for older adults will become readily accessible through certain Medicare plans, like Aetna.
Aetna Medicare President Christopher Ciano expressed his eagerness for the partnership between SilverSneakers and Apple Fitness+ business agreement in an official statement. “We continue to promote the benefits of physical activity to our members and are excited to offer them more ways to move with Apple Fitness+ made available by SilverSneakers,” Ciano began.
Ciano continues, “SilverSneakers understands the unique needs and fitness preferences of older adults. We share their passion for encouraging older adults to keep their bodies and minds active for improved overall well-being. We hope our members will embrace this opportunity to exercise in new ways and have fun doing it.”
In addition, Jay Blahnik, who is the Vice President of Fitness Technologies at Apple, injected his thoughts on the appealing news, confirming how “excited” Apple is to work with SilverSneakers. “Fitness+ is designed to be inclusive and welcoming to all, no matter what fitness level or stage of life people are in. With over 3,000 workouts and meditations, we can’t wait for SilverSneakers members to join us and introduce them to our trainer team who will keep them energized from start to finish.”
Next January, the members of Tivity’s program for seniors can take advantage of the AppleFitness+ library, complete with workouts including Dance, Strength, Yoga, guided meditations, audio content for walking and running purposes, and customized workout programs, without charge. Current SilverSneaker users can sign up to get fit with Fitness+ via their SilverSneakers member account on the SilverSneakers website or on the SilverSneaker GO mobile app.
